After a little deliberation, I've decided that I am going to go ahead and give this Colette Palette Challenge a shot. I saw a post on the Coletterie this morning where one of the editors had decided she'd just focus on three pieces, and it was a lightbulb moment for me....I can actually make this work without completely derailing my plan to work through those "kits" I've made from my stash, and without overwhelming myself with an overly ambitious plan that I just can't get through while I'm in my busy season at work. (I hope. Given that I don't have a day off for at least the next 13 days after today, I might not get to sew much at all!)
So, to kick things off and to gear myself up for starting the Jean-ius class, since I'm this close to finishing the convertible dress and will most likely finish it up this evening, this is me taking a look at the jeans I'm going to be basing this class on.
These are the jeans I go to pretty much every time I go hang out with friends, when I want to be comfortable but still look good. And they've been washed and worn so many times that the fly is starting to pull back and expose the zipper, the fabric around the button is beginning to fray and I'm getting worried that one of these days it'll just completely fall out, and the pocket stitching is beginning to come undone. And so it's definitely time to clone them before they fall apart completely, because I haven't found a pair of jeans that fit as well since.
